A DAD Amongst Dads

Last night I attended an awards ceremony where high school seniors were receiving full scholarships (based on merit) to a select few colleges and universities. When given the chance to speak many thanked both their parents, most thanked their mothers and one lone young lady went out of her way to tearfully thank her father for being an involved, loving and amazing dad. This is the kind of father all of us in the dad lane should all aspire to be.

I was fighting back the tears, coughing and rubbing my eyes as if they itched knowing good and well I was about to gush right along with all the other parents, teachers, counselors and adults in the audience. The entire event was a tear-fest which I arrived to a bit late because Google Maps sent me to a rehab/recovery shelter instead of the auditorium where the event was taking place. I envisioned what it might be like to be a proud father of either my son or daughter receiving a scholarship to college or any award for that matter and I got choked up all over again.
